I still can’t believe Katie and I got to interview Hank Green (episode 17) for the No Thanks We’re Booked podcast!
Hank is a YouTuber (cohost for vlogbrothers along with his brother and beloved author, John Green) and the NYT best-selling author of debut novel, An Absolutely Remarkable Thing. This speculative fiction/science fiction read was so much fun—and powerful.
His book about power, internet fame, and how people deal with the uncertainties of the unknown is so timely in today’s political climate. We’re thankful Hank shared April with the world. This is an important book, and we loved hearing about his motivations behind writing it, what the actual process was like, and what he hopes readers take away from it.
Other books mentioned during the episode:
- Akata Witch by Nnedi Okorafor
- Dark Matter by Blake Crouch
- The Calculating Stars by Mary Robinette Kowal
- Provenance by Ann Leckie
- The Three-Body Problem by Cixin Liu
- Red Mars (Mars Trilogy) by Kim Stanley Robinson
- Hyperion by Dan Simmons
- Dune by Frank Herbert
Thank you so much, Hank, for taking the time to answer our questions!
